    Monika Drob



    Currently, I am a graduate of the Adam Mickiewicz University (in Poznań) where I majored in Psychology (5-year MA programme), and an English Studies undergraduate student of Adam Mickiewicz University (BA program, expected graduation – September 2015). For the past few years, as a student, I have developed my both professional and personal skills by undertaking various activities (e.g. translating contracts, being a customer relationship management assistant, and completing various workshops in psychology area). The two quite diverse majors have contributed not only to my gaining theoretical knowledge and developing language and translation skills, but also helped me improve my diligence and organizational skills. In addition, they helped me develop the ability to set short- and long-term priorities. I have not chosen these majors at random. They have been dictated by my broad interests and my constant wish to develop these interests. Hence, the opportunity of working as translator, especially within the scope of psychology, would definitely influence my development in terms of practical knowledge and it would contribute to the expansion of my career path. It also presents a perfect chance to actively combine my interests and character features with my education profile. I am an enthusiastic and worldly person who is not afraid of new challenges. I fulfilled my passion for travelling and foreign languages by taking part in an Erasmus Internship Programme (Spain, Malaga) and Erasmus Studies Programme (Austria, Vienna).

    I have 10+ years of working with Microsoft Word, as well as having taken Keyboarding classes. I have also taken a few Web Design classes, but I have not done any in a while, so I would not say that I am proficient in it as I once was. Art wise, I prefer to draw by hand because that is what I am most comfortable doing, though I can draw digitally upon request. My hourly rate is negotiable.
